Gift Ideas for a New Mom

We were so thankful for the many ways our friends and families welcomed our babies when they were born. When someone went out of their way to include something just for mom, we felt so... seen. For a new mom in the thick of it, a simple gift to make her feel more like herself, even for just a minute, can make all the difference.
